Description

One of the most potent tools used to abolish slavery was allowing slaves to tell their own stories. Once confronted with the cruelties of slavery, social pressure mounted in white society to end that cruelty. This volume collects the stories of those slaves who helped to change the society in which they lived simply by telling what happened to them. They told their stories.
You will find here the stories of:
1) James Albert Ukawsaw Gronniosaw, An African Prince

2) Olaudah Equiano

3) Henry Bibb

4) Sojourner Truth

5) Harriet Jacobs

6) Rev. Noah Davis

7) The Underground Railroad, by William Still

In addition this volume contains three articles on slavery by Frederick Douglass, one re-telling the tale of his escape from slavery, another honoring John Brown, and the third relating his views on reconstruction in The South after the Civil War.

Part of the History Alive! series, this book, like the others in the series, lets eye witnesses to events tell their own story in their own words. The past rings in our ears as we read.
